After a really bad experience with solicitors, I reached out to Matthew Wilkinson. He was kind and courteous. He kept me informed and advised me all the way through, he truly was my advocate throughout the process. He got me a great settlement and finally I felt, thanks to him, that I had justice. I can’t thank him enough for laying my ghosts to rest.
When acting on my behalf I found your services to be of a very high and professional standard with excellent expertise in supporting me to successfully win my case.
Excellent and very efficient service. When ever I contacted the Solicitor I was greated in a friendly professional maner. I was always updated throughout the case. Excellent!
Everything was professionaly completed with careful attention to detail. At all stages MW made us feel comfortable and confident.
Many thanks for your professional efficient service. I was particularly impressed with the way my case was dealt with in a personal compassionate manner and was always kept informed of progress of the case on a regular basis. I was very pleased at any time to be able to contact Matthew personally by phone with any concerns or questions I may have had regarding my case. Once again thanks for an excellent service and positive outcome, I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone who requires this type of service.
I can definitely recommend Matthew Wilkinson, Solicitor, who did work on my behalf a couple of years ago. It was a fairly complex and extremely concerning matter, with respect to the negligence of another solicitor relating to a conveyancing process and it was handled to a satisfactory conclusion. Throughout the process Mr. Wilkinson was informative and provided confidence that matters were being dealt with accordingly. Having completed the issue now, and being aware of the process, it is absolutely clear to me that it is vital to have someone of the right caliber to represent you, especially when dealing with a grievance against another firm of solicitors.
The service I received from the first phone call was excellent. The stress and worry of my claim was taken away by the understanding manner of my adviser.
I am very pleased with the service received from Matthew Wilkinson. I was informed through the process about the different options available for me and this enabled me to make an informed decision. I could not have got a better outcome! Many Thanks.
Excellent Service. Thank you.
We would like to thank Matthew Wilkinson and Co for the exceptional way they handled our case, keeping us well informed and advised at every point, and eventually provided us with a very good outcome. We would strongly recommend you to all of our family and friends, should they need a good and honest team to fight for them.
